For the eighth year in a row, we are proud to present the coffees of Alejandra Chacón and her father, Arturo. We’ve established quite a bond with the Chacón family, to the point that Ritual buys all of the coffee that they produce from their three farms. The Chacóns have built up the small micro-mill for processing their coffees that they call El Angel. Wanting to provide additional support, Ritual began a sponsorship program to he]p rehabilitate and revitalize the farms.
Over the past several years, it has been very exciting to see the quantity and the quality of the Chacón family’s coffee improve in tandem - the El Aguacate is spectacularly fruited, with clean flavors of ripe pineapple, juicy nectarine, and green apple.
